Under-the-radar Packers

12th Man: Who is one offensive player and one defensive guy for Green Bay that might be a little under-the-radar but might have big impacts on Thursday’s game?

FB: On offense it’s Marquez Valdes-Scantling. The rookie receiver has stepped up into the number two spot with Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison out, and he’s played well with 23 receptions for 402 yards and two touchdowns on the season. MVS gives the Packers the deep threat they’ve lacked for years.

Defensively, defensive lineman Kenny Clark is a player to watch. He’s already set a career-high in sacks with five. Clark is in his third year and continues to improve each season, but he’s still only 23-years-old.

Clark is going to be key for the Packers against the Seahawks’ No. 1-ranked rushing offense.

Who wins when Seattle plays Green Bay?

12th Man: Who wins when the Seahawks play the Packers and why?

FB: I think Seattle gets the win. CenturyLink Field is a tough place to play, especially on a short week. Road teams are 2-8 in Thursday night games this season.

If Mike McCarthy continues to give Aaron Jones opportunities, the Packers will have a chance in this game, but the Seahawks’ powerful ground game concerns me.

The Packers haven’t had much joy in Seattle in recent years, and their poor run there continues on Thursday night.

I would like to thank Freddie Boston of Lombardi Ave. for giving 12s a bit more information about the Packers before Thursday’s game. Clearly, both teams need wins. But 12s, of course, hope that the Seahawks are the happy ones on Friday morning.
